i'd guess it's the same for you with the old vs. new video player.
if you don't have the bandwidth, you don't have the bandwidth (and thus things need to buffer / "spool").

since we only make one "derivative" / user accessible format size/quality, for each uploaded video, it's a fine line/tradeoff -- if we make our videos too small, we get complaints that they don't "look good", especially noticeable in fullscreen mode. other sites make 2-5 video qualities and then they can hook in frame dropping metrics to quickly determine what the best quality is for the "available bandwidth" at the time of the request for the client.
